Adobe Flash has been an important tool for web development, especially in the early years of this century. But with the progressive use of new technologies such as HTML5, it has been being relegated to a ‘simple’ but effective animation tool that Adobe recently renamed Adobe Animate CC. For some time now, Game Maker Studio allows the use of SWF (Shockwave Flash) elements in our projects.
We’ve been thinking about writing some posts about the tools we regularly use to develop our games. We’ll talk about them soon. But this time, we want to offer some brief thoughts on the importance of tools vs. creativity when creating a game.
We continue with another post dedicated to Tizen. On this occasion, we explain how to configure a Tizen device for testing, especially for Game Maker Studio users. On a previous post, we mentioned that in order to test the games we developed for Tizen, we asked for a developer device to make it properly. When we receive it, it was accompanied by a note explaining that it should be updated to the 2.2.1 version of Tizen using Linux.
